this opportunity to kind of examine what is going on in our real estate environment, and in particular, to thank the san francisco business times for putting on this event. and i think for most of us in this room, we rely very heavily on the san francisco business times to keep track of what is going on in san francisco, and the greater bay area, in the real estate world. and it is the best source of that information for all of us. mary asked me if i would make a few observations about the general state of the real estate economy here in san francisco and as i do that, i always have to think about what to say that mary hasn't already said about it. and if you look at the real estate economy generally in our nation, and the fact that it is still soft. that we still need more jobs. that there is a recovery, but it's a slow recovery. you can't do that without thinking gee, will i sound like a politician for one or the other major political parties? and so i will steer clear of that and focus instead on san francisco and maybe we're living in a bubble, but it's a pretty wonderful bubble to be living

in an environment -- people will always give to a greater gift. it is just a principle. if a group get together to give a gift to an entire city, it is easy to find people who will give to that. and the consequence is, you can learn a lot. talk about a networking opportunity. but nobody ever went there to network. they went out there to give their energy, imagination, their heart to something. >> there is that collaboration, the cross-disciplinary thing that happens out there, but i also feel like there is a bit of a sense of competition. people are trying to outdo each other, try to outdo each other trt impressive thing. >> that is human nature. i read a few years ago somebody complaining, i remember the good old days. you could put up a pink flamingo in front of your tent and it was cool. now with all of these big projects, i feel few tile -- futile. well, they learned the wrong lesson. the interesting thing is, people say that they are connected, but in an environment like that, it is easy to get connected. it is easy to get help. unless you insist on being the leader, you will find somethin
-turns now; the idea of this project having a negative impact on the environment ,. the environment is already user-friendly. i see people put their hands up in the air, turn left on fifteenth street, adds a lot of traffic. rather than to object to the high density of this project, we would ask you to respectfully find a way to reduce the density. we understand that during the hearings the whole idea is to create high-density and it is parking in the market/octavia plan. this lot is unusual. 2100 market has 80 units, and that is a much bigger project. this is a sliver lot on a corner. we would like you to entertain the idea of reducing the density, i put in our position letter is, we would like to have larger, two-bedroom units in this project. i will explain immolated testimony the rationale in more detail. to give you an idea, i own the building on nob hill, i have eight units the same size; in the 15 years i have had that building i have not had one couple with a child apply for any of the units. the whole idea in the general management plan, and the market/octavia plan fo

, there is nothing positive, the environment, like the stock market, you have an environment that is positive. it goes up. so much is based on psychology. the environment in the business world is not positive. the environment that comes out of washington is all negative. and, i can't say we make decisions based upon tax codes. in our business, we're in a business of opportunity. i say we have three under construction because this environment creates opportunities. if you have some cash. landlords are willing to take a lesser rent if you will. employment is available because people aren't working. there are, out of the nonworking a bunch of that really do want to work and kacht find jobs. i can't say everybody that doesn't work wants to work. those opportunities present themselves we move forward. >> president will say he has cut taxes for small businesses. i what do you say to that? >> absolutely not. he can say whatever he wants to say. it is all very, patronizing the electorate. lauren: yeah. >> unfortunately this election on both sides very honestly there is a lot of credibility gaps. i wo
. the environment is huge. it is stronger than willpower. surrounding yourself with artists, being in a culture where artists are driving, and where a huge amount of them is a healthy environment. >> you are making it safer. push, push. that is better. when i start thinking, i see it actually -- sometimes, i do not see it, but when i do, it is usually from the inside out. it is like watching something being spawned. you go in, and you begin to work, excavate, play with the dancers, and then things began to emerge. you may have a plan that this is what i want to create. here are the ideas i want to play with, but then, you go into the room, and there maybe some fertile ideas that are becoming manifest that are more interesting than the idea you had initially set out to plan. so there has to be this openness for spontaneity. also, a sense that regardless of the deadline, that you have tons of time so the you can keep your creativity alive and not cut it off and just go into old habits. it is a lot like listening. really listening to watch what is going to emerge. i like this thing where you put y

-tech companies, the creative workforces, who now want to live and work in urban environments, interact with their environments instead of work in suburban campuses that are fairly sterile and isolated. and that phenomenon has been going on to some time, but what really brought home some of the changes to me was a talk i heard earlier this week by alexa arena talking about the 5m project at 6th and mission, the conversion of the chronicle building and plant surrounding areas. and she talked about the design process as being one of going out to constituencies, potential constituencies, focus groups, listening to people, trying to find out what they were looking for in collaborative, interactive work environments. and bringing the city into those work environments, and the connection and the need for amenities like cultural amenities and the arts and food and all of those kinds of things. and so instead of it being design professionals and people in the real estate industry sort of imposing on the world what they think the world wants, it is sort of coming the other direction. if that is,
and innovate our new ideas for the new economy and our mutual obligations on the environment, and then there is something that paris and san francisco hold very dearly and that's an ongoing conversation about our human rights as world leaders, so it's human rights, it's the environment, it's the economy and these are the reasons why we hold our relationship with paris and with all the other great cities of the world in a sister city relationship so dearly, we learn from each other, we send delegations to each other, we welcome each other to the city but in each and every instance, we are always thinking about ideas about how we can help each other and help regions improve, so i am excited to have met with the mayor just a few minutes ago to reaffirm our relationship and we'll sign that in a few moments to document that and to promise each other that we will continue this very great relationship and we could not have done it without the involvement of our private citizens, tom horn has led a fantastic group of volunteers on our sister city committee for paris and san francisc
and then i would also like to ask for permission to introdchin of the francisco environment to be repaid through the special tax assessment against the specific parcel over a 20-year term. the port must opt into the special tax district, however the special taxes are secured by the tenant's leasehold interest. >> port in return would pay its prorated share of the special taxes which is approximately 35 percent, and that was derived by the amount of space that the port occupies as compared to the project over all. which are estimated to be approximately $100,000 annually. >> the sublease agreement, between the port and prologis provides for the reimbursement of the taxes leveed against the tenants especially to reduce the operating expenses. >> the project sponsor through the controls and the project sponsor is over here aaron blinkly and cordova is the director and johnson is represent as well. they have prepared extensive models on the energy safe ands their estimates through the sustain able improvements will be approximately $100,000 annually. so that equates to the cost of the specia
